'Rihanna Is As Important As Radiohead'
The Vaccines' singer Justin Young has made the bold claim that pop singer Rihanna is as important as Radiohead. He made the comment after being asked why The Vaccines decided to promote themselves as a rock band and dress in denim when they released their second album "Come Of Age" this year. "I just feel bands can be misunderstood, and I think people can over-intellectualise music," he told NME. "I think an artist like Rihanna is as important as a band like Radiohead. They serve different purposes, neither is more important. As for us, people might think of us an indie band that got big, but I think of us as a small pop band." It contrasts with a statement by his bandmate Freddie Cowan who had criticised Rihanna back in August: "Rihanna isn't an artist - she has 15 writers, 15 songwriters and 15 producers all fighting for space on her albums and she's the face of it. I have nothing against it, but I don't want to be associated with it." Do you agree that a pop artist like Rihanna can be as influential as a renown act like Radiohead? Who the hell are The Vaccines anyway? Let us know in the comments.
